(Layered Tech), a leading worldwide provider of on-demand IT infrastructure, has developed a new virtual private data center (VPDC) platform with levels of managed services, security and flexibility via a proprietary API that were previously unavailable in an integrated offering.  The new platform is a hybrid cloud computing infrastructure that gives customers a virtualized environment on dedicated servers within Layered Tech data centers, as well as levels of flexibility on how to securely access their VPDC, whether by dedicated lines, VPN or Internet.

Because Layered Tech’s new VPDC offering is technology-agnostic, customers can choose the virtualization platform that best suits their needs, including 3Tera’s AppLogic, VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V.  Layered Tech’s automated server provisioning system will also enable enterprise customers to design, order and deploy a secure virtualized environment within an hour, instead of the weeks or months it can take to provision a similar solution within many companies’ on-premise data centers.  And, Layered Tech’s new VPDC platform provides a customer API, which makes more than 100 applications immediately available to the customer’s developers; those developers then have access to the API for customizing additional applications of their choice.
